Re: where are all the 60-66 stepsides

Is there more fleet side trucks than steppers on this forum ? What's wrong with stepsides that's not a lot of people get them...

Apparently production numbers for 60-66 GM trucks donít exist, leaving the breakdown by body style a mystery. But based on memory from when these models were new, I would speculate (arguably) 75% of pickups were fleetsides and 25% were stepsides. Where I grew up young people didnít buy trucks, they bought new Chevelles and Pontiacs, or older Chevy passenger cars. Old people wanting a new truck bought long bed fleetside trucks because they were practical, and so did fleet owners. They hauled more stuff and could easily carry a camper or shell. So compared to stepsides (at least in my memory) the fleetsides always had a substantial numerical advantage.

When these trucks became ďused carsĒ, short stepsides were almost always preferred by the younger crowd. Just like 55-57 Chevy 2 door sedans and hardtops, they got used up by kids beating them senseless. After a decade or more of this, many were gone leaving available more of the undesirable old people models to pick from.

I donít have the enthusiasm to do an actual count, but looking through all 197 pages of the 60-66 picture thread Iíd suggest there is a much higher percentage of stepsides represented on this forum than Iíve ever experienced looking at old trucks in real life.

And because I was a car kid when these were new, and still young when they became available used, I always wanted a stepside myself:

Although I prefer fleetsides, I own one, I'd someday like to have a long stepside.
